Interesting patent 02-11-2010

Post by adresd »

A new patent seems to have surfaced by Kanna Shimizu:

20100037068 Method to Protect Secrets Against Encrypted Section Attack 02-11-2010

As can be seen, dated 02-11-2010, so very recent.

Interesting reading as I am sure some of you will agree.

"A method, system, and computer-usable medium are disclosed for controlling unauthorized access to encrypted application program code. Predetermined program code is encrypted with a first key. The hash value of an application verification certificate associated with a second key is calculated by performing a one-way hash function. Binding operations are then performed with the first key and the calculated hash value to generate a third key, which is a binding key. The binding key is encrypted with a fourth key to generate an encrypted binding key, which is then embedded in the application. The application is digitally signed with a fifth key to generate an encrypted and signed program code image. To decrypt the encrypted program code, the application verification key certificate is verified and in turn is used to verify the authenticity of the encrypted and signed program code image. The encrypted binding key is then decrypted with a sixth key to extract the binding key. The hash value of the application verification certificate associated with the second key is then calculated and used with the extracted binding key to extract the first key. The extracted first key is then used to decrypt the encrypted application code."

Very Interesting.
Seems to be a response to Geohot and the current round of hacking taking place.

However from reading her previous work ... ecture.pdf

it would seem that she predicted those types of attacks and if they implemented all the security in that high level paper, then in theory at least Geohot's attack may give Lv0 command names back via the peek readout but the system should still remain rather secure.

"something easy would be to check to see if equal size armies are in a given radius. that would show games with interesting battles" Ill add where size >= some threshold
